CDGK may run KESC after June, says Sindh CM’s adviser

KARACHI: The level of commitment shown by the Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) has been disappointing, especially in view of the increased aggravation amongst the masses, therefore, the time has come to knock out the KESC and a decision in this regard has to be taken by June.

It will either be the federal government or the CDGK that will take over the affairs of the utility, with the latter being the more rational option the said Adviser to the Sindh Chief Minister Khawaja Izharul Hassan while addressing a joint press conference at the New Karachi Town Nazim Office on Wednesday.

That's just C.R.A.Z.Y. talk. CDGK to run KESC? Seriously, this guy is from MQM and I understand where he is coming from but I do not think that the government will take even 1% chance of testing Mustafa Kamal's capabilities of running CDGK. He has already become an icon for millions in Karachi and elsewhere. Letting him run KESC would eventually make people want him to run the whole damn country.

Besides the crazy political talk, the government can not do anything about KESC. They will never take it back or give it to CDGK as it will further destroy investor's confidence.

My personal opinion is that they should not worry about investors. Zardari being our president is enough for any investor to not invest in Pakistan until the bast*** dies!

^^ totally agreed

the problem is when they sold the KSE to a private company in past.

That company is not willing to invest a penny in the system.

Since KSE is privatized, the Federal Govt is not willing to contribute any money in the company.

Its a mess now.

PTCL and KSE are good example that results become more complex and negative even if your privatize a company in Pakistan.

Pakistan is one hell of an example of Failed States with all the resources an talented human resources.
